Our Partners

We’re grateful to the trusts, foundations and livery companies that support our work, and help us make our education system work for every child, including those that wish to remain anonymous. 

Meet a couple of our partners, and the work they support: 

The Garfield Weston Foundation 

The Garfield Weston Foundation is a founding supporter of Teach First, contributing more than £1.5 million since 2003. The Foundation’s support has been instrumental in helping us to build a fair education for all, including the development of our primary programme, expansion into the East of England, and supporting placements in coastal, rural and isolated communities.  

The Foundation Trustees have most recently made another significant grant over three years for Leading Together, our pioneering whole school leadership programme. Thanks to the Foundation, this programme will work with more than 400 leaders across 85 schools, creating a culture and environment that every teacher and pupil can thrive in. 

The Lone Pine Foundation

The Lone Pine Foundation supports organisations that fight poverty through education. We’ve been working in partnership for ten years, supporting the most disadvantaged schools across the country. In this time, they’ve donated over £1.5million and have helped to transform education for thousands of pupils.  

Throughout our partnership, members of the board have visited our schools to learn more about their challenges and have given pupils invaluable support with their CVs and interview skills.   

Our thanks also to:

The Every Child Fund

Teachers are leaving the profession. Teacher training applications were down 5% last year. And it’s the disadvantaged communities that suffer the most. Your support can help change that and make our education system work for every child.

The difference you’ll make  

Support The Every Child Fund and you’ll join individuals whose gifts will put talented teachers where they’re needed the most. It’s crucial to support those schools tackling the biggest challenges. And key to changing thousands of children’s lives for good. 

£10,000 will recruit and train three talented teachers, who will reach 375 children in their first year. 

£5,000 will train two teachers aspiring to become middle or senior leaders, or headteachers. 

We can offer you: 

  • Visits to a Teach First partner school – so you can witness your impact first-hand.  
  • Regular Every Child Fund newsletters – to read about our successes and the difference you’ve made. 
  • Invitations to exclusive events with fellow Every Child Funders. 
  • Networking with like-minded supporters who are as passionate as you about improving education. 

Want to help make our education system work for every child? Email Georgina Pedley at or call 020 3862 8193.

Teach First has a really magic ingredient, but it’s deceptively simple – taking really talented people, training them well and putting them in schools to be inspiring teachers to the next generation.
